Trying to think about how funny it'd be if Musk owned a hockey (or any major professional sports) team.

He lost himself a customer after the repeated insane things he's done. Most obviously starting with calling the guy who saved the Thai soccer team stuck in a cave a "pedo" and who's defense was "it was a joke." friging jerk.

Funny, I have the same reaction now when I see Teslas on the road.  I had this perception of Musk as some intelligent, techie guy that founded these companies, never knowing he just bought them.  After all this I would never want to own anything he's involved with.  Yes there are other bad people in corporations and I'm sure I own products where some idiots are behind the scenes, but none are as publicly stupid as this guy is.  Just a repulsive person that I want no association with.

As much as I agree he's an awful person and his business acumen has become wildly overstated, I don't actually think he's stupid. He's just bought so heavily into his reputation that he can't get out of his own way. He's just become so mythologized over the years and it seems to have led him to believe he can do anything better than everyone else.

You know how people say there are different kinds of intelligence? Well, I think it works both ways.

Yeah I mean Musk might be able to do math better than I can but I would have told ya spending $44 billion on twitter was a bad idea. So who's really stupid?
